Herdwatch App Wins New Product Award at Dairy Day

Farm management app, Herdwatch, which is fully compliant with quality assurance schemes and linked directly to BCMS, has won the prestigious new product award at this year’s UK Dairy Day, judged at Telford on September 13.

The app, which was awarded the Prince Philip Award at the 2016 Livestock Event and the Innovation Merit Certificate at the 2016 LAMMA Show, is a comprehensive herd management tool that allows off line data to be entered throughout the day from your phone or tablet. It is currently used by over 6000 farmers in Ireland and a rapidly growing number in the UK.

The Herdwatch app was one of 12 shortlisted products judged at Dairy Day, and illustrates the tremendous innovation being achieved in the dairy sector.

The judging panel comprised of representatives from IDEXX, HSBC and Holstein UK with the winner announced during the afternoon of the event.

James Greevy, Herdwatch Business and Product Development Manager adds,
“I believe the success of this system is in its simplicity. It’s easy to use, practical and yet provides comprehensive records that are fully compliant with quality assurance schemes, including the Red Tractor scheme.

“It’s incredibly quick to use and is designed to work off line, daily tasks such as calf registration and medicine recording taking just seconds.

"We encouraged farmers to take advantage of our 30-day free trial and gave live demonstrations on our screen at Dairy Day. The stand was very busy throughout the event, with many farmers impressed with what the app can offer. One of the key benefits is that records are automatically transferred from BCMS, so set up is simple and quick," James adds.

Herdwatch is also designed for beef and sheep enterprises, as well as arable land, giving farmers the significant advantage of having all farm data in one place and easily accessible.
